    Night and day for me. There is no way you're getting away with saying a wii on a SDTV looks as good and runs better than a ps3 or an Xbox. That is sheer bollocks.

    Halo 3 looks better on an SD tv to me.

    Go figure.

    First time I played Halo 3 was on an SD tv and it knocked my socks off. It seemed utterly gorgeous. I played Gears on it the same day and it looked like crap.

    I'm sure you mentioned something about that.... Only remember because it was such a moment...
    It was a moment that will last throughout my video gaming life; to say “I was shocked” is an understatement. And it was all over the video gaming press slating the Wii U for having a 1.24GHz CPU. Poor little Espresso didn’t even have time to get things going with Latte and Higgins didn’t want to know; whoever spilt the beans should be ashamed.
    How many times? It is your hangup and yours alone that you are so concerned with "power" and not mine. If I were as concerned as yourself I would clearly own/build a P.C suited solely to gaming. I buy Nintendo because history has told me that it is there I will the games which have interested me most over 2 decades. I also own a PS3 - as I did a PS2 - which I have since launch and enjoyed a fair few games on it but not as much as I have Nintendo's library of exclusives and those third-party gems which come out of nowhere.
    You need to chill out and take t easy here, doing so you'd realise that Sid is taking the piss.

    Also I find Mario* and Zelda both quite ugly, even by Wii standards. They're garish imo. I think Ratchet and Clank, and the old Sonics (1&2 basically) use colour to a much better effect.



    *that's just the 2D Mario's. Galaxy is beautiful in my eyes.

    Why? Genuinely. If he had claimed to have played nothing but PS3 or 360 games for four years would that have been met with a round of applause? How is it so hard to understand that fans of Nintendo have had the same satisfaction (perhaps more) of playing Nintendo's library of exclusives on the Wii this gen than others have of playing Halo, Gears, Uncharted of God of War? I mean really, what is so difficult to comprehend?

    Yeah, only a couple of games looked better in SD to me. Most suffered from the tiny writing thing and general lack of clarity.

    @AdamAsunder

    Yeh, probably because it runs in SD native.
    Some Wii games will look gorgeous on a smaller TV, rivalling many 360 games running at 480p, but only in fidelity. Try playing Wii games on anything over 32inch though and you start trying to wipe the Vaseline from your eyes.
    I agree with Higgins that some games look better on their native systems. An example being Wind Waker looks gorgeous running through my component connected Wii on a 42inch Panny Plasma, but a little haggard and dated on an emulator. Others though, games like Xenoblade and Mario Galaxy 2 benefit immensely if you can get them running with stability.

    If you are using a 360 controller how do you do all the pointer business in SMG?

    I set up dolphin on my PC a few years ago, mainly for Gamecube games but I quickly abandoned it after it became more hassle then its worth. maybe I was unlucky though
    Control the pointer with the right stick. Pointer functionality isn't essential in SMG really.

    Also, is Higgins really one of those people saying extra resolution doesn't add to the visual experience? Rayman Origins PS3>Rayman Origins Wii

    Some early 3D games in SD can give off the effect of having a primitive form of anti-aliasing on old TVs. Like how I absolutely adore the original Goldeneye 64, I still do, but when I look back at it now in an emulator, the textures are exposed by a higher resolution, so it makes you think "..oh".

    I'm interested to see what the Wiimode is like on the WiiU.

    When I get paid I'm going to try and get a reasonably priced Wiimote/Nunchuk along with Galaxy 2 and Skyward Sword.

    My mum still has an SDTV. It's quite big, so it's more than useable. She only uses it for watching tv, which is mostly sd anyway.

    I have quite a few SDTV's lying about (not in use) what worries me is if Sony try and promote 4K UHDTV's for the next generation, when it is more likely UHDTV's will be mainstream in 2020. I know the Japanese government have legislated (licenced) Ultra High Definition broadcasting for 2014, but the cost of 4K TV’s will be huge in the first few years.

    When the Xbox 360 launched it cost £700 for a 32” Samsung HDTV with 1 HDMI connection; if the next generation requires a TV upgrade then the console plus TV cost will be ridiculous.

    Yes, and Halo 3 came out in 2007.

    Considering you are the one who has ME on ignore, and yet you send me PMs and reply-quote my posts, you're doing a terrible job of ignoring me.

    @Higgins - I wasn't being entirely serious :-)
